that she heard it was a popular show in Cebu, and that a lot of tourists go to Mactan, Cebu just to watch that show.

Korean friend: Mwo?, Amazing show very popular show in Cebu! Wei shen me ni bu zhi dao? (Yeah she speak chinese as well)
Me: *blank stare err yeahhh i think i heard of it...
Okay I admit I lied. I don't have a clue what this Amazing Show is all about.
So what is a guy to do when he is in this position. Ask Google.
The Amazing Show Cebu is supposedly the Best Transgender show here in Cebu. I guess you probably are the best when you're the only one having that kind of show here. In my experience, I haven't heard of a transgender being shown here ( Thank the Bishops for that). Apparently, The Amazing Show was established first in Manila, and was envisioned by the founders to become the biggest transvestite theatre in Asia. It was founded around 2001, and later on soon expanded to other cities such as Cebu in 2003, and Boracy in 2007.
